Bra fitting- Seattle Nordstrom

Bra fitting in the US is one of those things women do not regularly do. The idea of going to get a fitting ramps up the anxiety levels in a lot of women. We are faced with the idea of being topless in front of a stranger, not a comforting thought. So most women just …

That awkward moment….

When you are between bra sizes. One is too big and the size down is too small. What do you do? Buy the bigger size or the smaller? Does the shape of your breast (or implants) factor into this? Personally I buy the bigger (usually). I don’t want to encourage tissue migration with the smaller …

What to expect in a bra fitting & when your bra fitting goes wrong

Review~ Freya Lauren Balcony Bra

I have been sitting on this review for a while.  This is a gorgeous looking bra and I thought it would grow on me.  But once again, I love the picture of the product more than the product itself.  This particular bra is part of the Lauren range, with a size range of 28D-J, 30D-K, …

Bra fitting with implants~ It’s the same but totally different.

I happened into the bra fitting world by a choice I made in life.  I made the choice to get implants.  Really, if I had a proper bra fitting before getting implants it would have made my choice much easier.  I was the girl wearing a 32AA bra that was too large, who should have …
